KALs:

  • Ancient WIPs K/CAL - Dust off those ancient WIPS (or not so ancient WIPS).  Let’s clear some needles/hooks. K/CAL starts July 15, 2018 and will run through September 28, 2018.  Rules - this is a K/CAL for WIPs, so anything in progress. Why is it an ancient WIPs K/CAL? Because the older the WIP, the more entries you get.  For every year old the project is, enter it that may times in the FO thread when you finish it during the K/CAL. If your project is 5 years old, when you finish it you would post it 5 times in the FO thread on Ravelry.  Random prizes will be drawn from the FO thread AND also a prize for the oldest WIP finished! Have fun and finish some things. I will also put up a separate thread for Frogged projects, so if you decide the best course is to just use the yarn for something else, you can post your before and after frogging pictures for a separate prize. Use #MLYAncientFrog to tag your projects on instagram!
  • Baby K/CAL - it seems like there is a plethora of babies joining the world shortly, so let’s welcome them woolly style.  K/CAL will begin August 1, 2018 and run until October 4, 2018. This K/CAL is for baby sized stuff (24 months and younger).  WIPs allowed.
  • Mitten Tree K/CAL - Starting October 1, 2018 and running through November 30, 2018.  We are partnering with our local UPS Store to collect hand-made mittens, hats, or scarves for donation to their mitten tree.  Enter the KAL and give back
